I\'ve noticed that, while a lot of software sample-playback synths (such as SampleTank) come with a much larger amount of sample data than hardware workstations such as Triton (4 GB versus 64 MB), and a greater amount of RAM is devoted to each individual sample, the sound quality doesn\'t seem to be proportionately better.
Why is this the case? Is it because Korg and other hardware synth manufacturers have more years of experience in sound design? Or possibly because, since sound developers for software modules have far more memory to work with, they feel less motivated to be resourceful?
Any light on this subject would be appreciated.
